Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh blamed the recent attack on a state Congress MP and MLA at Singhu Border on rival Aam Aadmi Party, implying that the party was in cahoots with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to “weaken the farmers’ protest”.
“Farmers had been protesting peacefully at the Delhi border for two months without resorting to any such acts,” a press release quoted him as saying. He added that AAP workers present near the Kisan Sansad had attacked and manhandled Punjab Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu and MLA Kulbir Singh Zira.
“AAP is camping there,” he said, asserting that “No one but AAP is responsible for the attack. “Farmers are not responsible,” he added.
